Take a first look inside the new San Carlo restaurant at Manchester Airport

A welcome new addition to Terminal 2

Published

While the likelihood of us jetting off on a summer holiday this year are pretty slim, the day when we can finally get off a plane into the searing heat of a foreign country will be back at some point.

The majority of us can’t wait for this moment, and the day we can travel around the world once again will be a very welcome one.

One part of the holiday routine we all cherish is the time spent in airport departures before our flight, a magical place where chugging pints or cocktails at 6am is not only accepted but actively encouraged.

Having a few drinks and some food before boarding our flight is a sacred part of the airport experience, and now Manchester Airport has a new spot to do just that.

During the quiet time of lockdown, the airport has been cracking on with its huge expansion plans, which will see a host of new operators moving into the terminals.

One of these is the Italian favourite San Carlo, which is opening a brand new site in Terminal 2 soon.

Now some first look images of the restaurant have been shared online by DSP Electrical, a company which worked on the new site.

They wrote on Twitter: “Today was the operational handover for the new San Carlo restaurant at Manchester Airport T2. This was a special project we played our part in delivering for TRG Concessions. We look forward to the day when our airports return to the normality we all know & love when travelling.”

And judging by the images the space is pretty much done and ready to go – an official launch date has yet to be confirmed, however.

Will they wait until larger crowds return to the airport or are there currently enough people passing through to justify opening?

Either way, it’s great to have somewhere like San Carlo in the airport, providing some top quality Italian grub alongside bottles of prosecco and fine wines.

The restaurant will be a San Carlo Cicchetti, like the one that has operated inside House of Fraser since 2011 – just across the road from the actual San Carlo restaurant.

The departure terminal is set to double in size, meaning a whole new set of venues will be opening up alongside San Carlo, including Grindsmith, Barburrito, Archie’s and more.

A new vegan ‘fish’ and chip shop has opened in Manchester serving up twists on chippy classics

Can’t wait to try this!

There’s a brand new entirely-plant based fish and chip shop open in Manchester!

Founded by 31-year-old Jess Jones, JJ’s Vish and Chips is already massively popular in Leeds. Now, Jess is bringing her vegan chippy to Manchester.

For now, you can grab vegan fish and chips for takeaway with plans to open her dream shop in the future.

Opening up a dark kitchen in Ardwick, the menu boasts chippy classics such as scampi, calamari, battered sausages, chicken nuggets and of course fish and chips – but all vegan!

Instead of the usual ingredients, Vish and Chips uses ingredients like banana blossom and tofu with nori sheets to create a fishy taste and texture. 

Jess told the Manchester Evening News: “A lot of fish and chip shops cook their chips in beef dripping, so you can’t even get chips as a vegetarian or a vegan.

“I try to make it as like-for-like as I can as a traditional chip shop, just with a twist that there’s no meat and no fish.

“Our products are quite good replicas, I promise!”

Jess said they’ve received really good feedback so far, adding: “We get customers in who eat fish and meat but they come to us for a nice change.

“There are a lot of questions around it. People thought it’s a bit of a bizarre idea, but actually when it opened we’ve been very very busy.

“It’s a bit of a crazy feeling and kind of bittersweet because I know there are so many people in the hospitality industry who can’t open their businesses.

“But it’s a really good feeling to open in a new city and to do it safely.”

Is your local Spoons on the list?

Published

JD Wetherspoon

Wetherspoons has confirmed that it will be reopening hundreds of pubs next month.

The pub chain announced that 394 venues would open their doors on April 12th, after the government’s roadmap out of lockdown was revealed.

Stage two of this roadmap will see pubs and restaurants open for outdoor service, although customers will still have to follow the rules around mixing households.

Spoons is only opening a limited number of its 875 UK pubs, as not all of them are equipped for outdoor drinking and eating.

This includes plenty across Greater Manchester and the North West, like the Castle in the Air at Trafford Park, the Bishop Blaize in Stretford, the Gateway in Didsbury, and Chorlton’s Sedge Lynn.

A Greater Manchester chippy has started doing battered chip butties filled with gravy or curry sauce

I need to try one of these

Flounders Fish & Chips Blackrod/Facebook

Flounders Fish and Chips in Blackrod has started selling a battered chip butty and customers are going mad for it!

The deep-fried treat will set you back just £2 and is served with either English curry, Chinese curry, gravy or mushy peas.

Staff say the new item is already flying out the deep fat fryer.

Owned by Victoria Flatters for the past eight years, Victoria reckons they are the only chippy in the area to sell the deep-fried treat.

The 50-year-old told the Manchester Evening News: “My daughter sent me a link about a battered and the shop was doing it down south.

“We weren’t sure about it because we thought it would be a bit of a mess.

“But they’re quite light and really nice. People have been coming back for more – one customer has been every day for two weeks!”

The barm is put in the fryer for three to four minutes before being turned over and cooked on the other side until crispy. It’s then topped with chips for a delicious treat.

Victoria added: “We are the only ones doing it in the area. I don’t know anyone else that’s doing it.

“We just thought we would do a bit of variety.

“With demand I have to keep up with what people like and what the changes are, it’s been a brilliant response.”

Right then – that’s tea tonight sorted!
